Sweet 'n Low is perfect for Summer Cocktails: a Crowdtap review

Disclosure:  I received Sweet 'n Low samples complimentary through Crowdtap for review purposes.

I got lucky recently and was chosen to sample and share Sweet 'n Low through Crowdtap. What a blast from the past...just in time for summer cocktail season! I remember my mom and her friend Dot using Sweet 'n Low all the time. That container was always in our pantry ready for guests too. It has been around for a long time and it sweetens perfectly--that's why it has been so successful over the years. I did some peeking and found out that Sweet ‘n Low was created 55 years ago by Ben Eisenstadt and his son Marvin.  Back in 1957, they decided to create a low calorie sweetener to replace sugar.  I like that Sweet ‘n Low was started by by a true family.  Sweet ‘n Low contains saccharin which is one
of the oldest of approved low-calorie sweeteners. That is something to think about.

Lucky me...I received a 50 packet box of Sweet 'n Low, 5 individual 2 packs and several amazing and fun recipe cards to test out some yummy skinny cocktails. Sweet 'n Low fits perfectly into anyone's lifestyle just as well in 2014 as it did in 1974. I liked the recipes and tried out a few recently.

I was surprised that Sweet 'n Low is a good option for skinny cocktails. It provides a nice, sweet flavor that is just perfect for summer.  Several of my friends thought my Sweet 'n Low skinny cocktail creations were pretty darn good too.  I shared the samples with several of my friends and mom friends who happily tucked them in their purse (you never know when you might need one so keep a few in there!)  I like the packets because they are super easy to open and the taste which is just sweet enough. The nice thing about Sweet 'n Low is that you can use it in hot drinks or cold beverages and you can even bake with it. It is a good option to keep down the calories while still enjoying some treats.
